Repair and install with O.E.M. disk

Can I do a repair and install with a O.E.M Windows 7 Home Premium 64 or do I need a retail version.

You can repair on the one computer that had the system installed. The OEM is tied to one computer for a lifetime.
If the OEM was supplied with the computer, it is tied into that computer only.

OEM is a license...not a disc-type. The discs are the same....it is the license key you put in once you have the system up and running that determines the differences.

Thanks folk for the information. I don't need to use it now. Just wanted the information if I need to later. If I understand I can do this with this OEM disk as long as the operating system are the same and I use that computers license key.
